#RivetReview Archive - Part Five

At this point in time (around September 2015), my reviews started looking more like reviews. I present to you, part five of the #RivetReview archive. From now on, the archive posts will be going live on Fridays with two products per post.

I assure you, this is part five.

Note: Information not pertaining to the outcome of the product review may have been been edited. Purchase/PR sample/gift status has been stated on each item.

 Mr. Bean Coffee Bean Scrub - Mandarin [Purchase]

Original Review:
"I received this product in my Violet Box (the last one they ever sent out). I have used this product twice. Both times have left my skin feeling really nice after, but for the love of all things good in this world, the effort I needed to put into cleaning up the mess and excess coffee grounds from my body was so not worth the benefit. This product is not Spoonie friendly, but if you have the energy to clean every last stain of coffee from your shower, you might benefit from this. I personally will not be repurchasing this product, or anything similar, but I will use it when I do have the extra spoons to spare. Maybe if you have a shower seat, it may work, but standing there, cleaning the shower sucks.
Too messy, I'm better off using a shower gel or cream and a loofah/shower puff to get the same results, and a moisturiser after. Conclusion, really not worth the effort for me, or for other Spoonie Beauties. For others, might be okay, the results are nice and it smells good."

Any new thoughts?
I have used plenty of coffee scrubs since this disaster with great success. Personally, I believe it was the coconut oil component that made it difficult to clean; it was very greasy in the tub. Other scrubs simply rinsed off my body and the tub without staining. The staining looked like a very poorly applied fake tanning product. The other huge disappointment was this "Australian Company" was manufacturing this product off shore for low cost with high profit margins, along with the extra freight involved to distribute. This company isn't as green as it makes itself out to be.

Process of removing the drawn on eyebrows.
RosehipPLUS Organic Daily Cream Cleanser [PR]

Original Review:
"Road testing the brand new RosehipPLUS Cream Cleanser. Holy wow, I'm having fun!
It cleanses like a balm, moisturises like a oil and removes makeup better than some makeup removers. Yeah, it's a win, and doesn't burn my eyes! I don't normally use a cotton pad to remove this product, I use a facial towel with hot water, but just with the cotton, it got off some l budge proof brow pencil and cut through (non-waterproof) mascara in a flash. Team it up with your favourite moisturiser/facial oil and you're ready to go. I prefer to use balm and cream cleansers at night, but I've been using this one in the morning too. Will probably stick to my morning gel and evening cream/balm cleansing routine, but I really wanted to give this a go."

Any new thoughts?
This cleanser really rated. It went over the eyes with ease, cleaned off all makeup, and left my skin feeling cleansed without that annoying tight feeling. It's a dry skin's best friend.

See, a lot more reading, but still not there.
